The Grading SystemA system that focuses on qualifications French high schools prepare students for a battery of exams administered by the university system called the Baccalaureat or BAC.

The other half of these BAC recipients (32.4% of the age group) have obtained a general BAC, far more difficult academically, in one of three branches: scientific, literary and economic/social studies. Over 80% of those who take this exam pass it due to prior streaming and selection. The exam includes separate tests, each several hours long, in every subject area studied (please see "academic program" below). Scores are multiplied by coefficients, then added and averaged to get the overall score which must be above 10 out of 20 to pass.

In contrast, on the scientific Bac, Math scores are multiplied by 7, sci
